Hi guys before you do anything drastic, unplug the monitor from the back and wait a couple of minutes and then replug it. I know it sounds like a simple solution, that's what I did and it worked. It kinda looks like it needs to be demagnetized....

One common cause of ghosting is an inferior monitor cable. Remove any extension cables and check again. The monitor may be getting interference from another device nearby, such as a printer, for example. Try turning off/ disconnecting other devices and see if the ghosting disappears. If so, you could buy a better shielded cable, or rearrange your components to prevent the interference.
That would be a simple fix if it works....

Usually, LCD monitor ghosting appears when the cable isn't tight, the cable is faulty, or low quality. The cable should be less than 8-10 feet long. Try using a different monitor cable (they're mostly interchangable) and see if the problem goes away. I'd put my money on the cable or a loose cable connection.
YOU ARE EXPERIENCING THE EFFECT OF GHOSTING. iT CAN BE FIXED
cREATE A 1200X1600 100% WHITE .GIF TO USE AS A SCREEN SAVER. (IN WINDOWS YOU CAN ADD IT TO MY PICTURES SLIDESHOW)
Set this slide show to run after 2 minutes of non use. Set the nonitor to power off in a short amount of non use. say 15 minutes. Do that for a couple of days and the ghosting affect will go away . You can then turn to a more reasonable screen saver.

It sounds as if you have "ghosting". Has your monitor been moved recently? Do you have any electrical cords running over or on the monitor cable? have you changed the video cable to see if it still does it? I have seen this issue be solved by using a good quality VGA cable, cheap ones usually ghost.
ghosting is a memory problem, the monitor has a memory chip this helps with the video rendering to display the image, the chip can over time become damaged like any other memory chip, its its read use delete type but some times it can take longer to delete this then gives you the ghost shadow. it can sometimes be the software glitching, but there is no way to fix the firm wear on the monitor as the chip is pre programed before the monitor is assembled.
